Under the mistletoe at Christmas shouldn’t be the only time others see you kiss your wife. You should kiss her in a box, you should kiss her with a fox. You should kiss her here or there, you should kiss her anywhere.
People should know that you’re in love with and attracted to your wife. I’m not telling you to make out in public, I’m merely stating that a simple kiss before parting company or rejoining with your spouse is ALWAYS acceptable. In church, in school, in court, audience or no audience. Anywhere. Always.
Some people have a stigma of impropriety attached to such a public display. This notion that kissing your lawful wife in a public place is taboo is wrong. You aren’t two hormone driven teenagers on a street corner passing the time while the light changes. You are two grown, committed adults together for all time.
Some people are shy and don’t want to be seen in public. To you I say: get over it!
What if it’s the last time you see your lover alive? Don’t live with regret that you didn’t have a good-bye kiss.
“A kiss seals two souls for a moment in time.” -Levende Waters
Kisses are the universal symbol and display of love. You should be neither ashamed or abashed to kiss the one you wedded. Kissing is your first act as a married couple. Kissing is a reminder to each other that you’re more than just friends.
Don’t make your wife hold mistletoe over her head to get you to kiss her.
Here’s the practical advice:
- Talk About Kissing – Just as with everything else in marriage, communicate about what’s comfortable and what’s uncomfortable.
- Don’t Act Like It’s a Chore – A gift may as well not be given if it is given begrudgingly; same goes for a kiss.
- Don’t Be Scared – You’re allowed to do it. It’s okay. That ring on your finger is a License to Kiss.
- Love Like It’s the Last Time – You want the last memory of someone to be a good one. If it’s your eternal companion, make it the best possible. Leave her with a kiss. Every time.
Above all else: Love Your Wife
